Webhook

Webhooks are a useful tool for apps that want to execute code after a specific event happens on a shop, for example, after a customer creates a cart on the storefront, or a merchant creates a new product in their admin.

Instead of telling your app to make an API call every X number of minutes to check if a specific event has occured on a shop, you can register webhooks, which send an HTTP request from the shop telling your app that the event has occurred. This uses many less API requests overall, allowing you to build more robust apps, and update your app instantly after a webhook is received.

Event data can be stored as JSON or XML. Webhooks can be registered for the following events:
